NMIPL, which is into both commercial packaging printing, is now gearing towards consolidating its packaging business.
“Our package finishing operations have been mostly manual so far. Now, as we expanded our packaging printing business, we realised that automation is the need of the hour to provide quality on time every time,” Ishaan Aggarwal, director, New Model Impex, said.
In this consolidation towards packaging printing, the company has also invested in a Steinemann automatic laminator.
According to Aggarwal, when it came to finishing equipment for packaging printing, Bobst was a natural choice. “This is due to the credibility of machines, excellent after-sales service and quality production. The machines have reduced our downtime, and has increased throughput and capacity,” he added.
New Model Impex produces mono cartons for its clients from electronics, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals and other FMCG industries.
“While we are focusing on packaging now, we are not going to stop printing commercial jobs completely, as you often need commercial printing to complement packaging, like literature for pharma packaging and other promotional materials,” Aggarwal said.
The 70-year-old company, established by Megh Raj Aggarwal, started with printing magazines and weeklies, before moving to commercial printing and now packaging. An industrial engineering graduate from Purdue University, USA and a certificate holder from the Indian Institute of Packaging in New Delhi, Aggarwal joined the company four years back. Today, he and his father Arvind Aggarwal handle the operations.
